Saw this place on trip advisor and everyone raved about the large breakfast. Had it and was not disappointed! Fried egg, French cheese, ham, crusty seeded bread with plum or orange & mango jam, large croissant and the most amazing French toast with apple & cinnamon jam! All washed down with tea and freshly squeezed orange juice for 12 euros!... More

In my previous trip to AMS I went to this place twice but they were full, this time I was luckier (this is a small place, so book if you can). I had breakfast there, their carpaccio salmon was delicious! Very cosy atmosphere and friendly staff.

What a lovely little place! We got to Gartine around 11am and we were lucky enough to get a table, they get really busy, tables get booked in advance. We went for the big breakfast and so glad we did, it was delicious, the best French toast I have ever had wish I asked for the recipe. Great staff, fast... More

Very small, cosy place. Very kind service. If you order the high classic tea, your little table will be entirely covered by excellent sandwiches, quiches, cakes...

The menu is small but there is enough choice for all tastes! We both had the salmon on pumpkin sourdough which was delicious! Well worth a visit and do book! As for the food poisoning comment I can only believe this was from an over partied visitor as all the food is prepped in front of you and it is... More

This was advertised in the easy jet magazine and it took some finding. Well worth the effort had the large breakfast which included coffee, fresh orange juice, egg, salami, sour dough toast, cinnamon French toast with homemade jam and a fresh croissant all superb & already booked for tomorrow. Service was attentive and friendly give it a try.

This was my 3rd time dining for breakfast at Gartine. On the first 2 occasions we were lucky to walk in and get a table. This time we reserved one, and whilst eating they had to turn away about 7 people in the 90 minutes we were there. Nice buzz to the place, small and cosy. Friendly staff and all... More

I had tried to eat here before, but I didn't have a reservation and they were completely full. There are only a few tables, so either get a reservation or come at off-peak hours. After finally having eaten there, it was totally worth it. The breakfast is delicious and filling, served in a warm and friendly atmosphere. I had a... More
